Toro model 51950 wacker: I have a hard time starting this

Customer Question

Toro model 51950 weed wacker: I have a hard time starting this unit, its like it gets flooded. I follow starting instructions etc. A friend of mine tells me that my gas mix is too dark, but I follow mixing directions on the bottle. His gas mix is lighter cause he uses less oil mix in his gas. Please advise.

Hello, the gas cap says 50:1 ratio, is that how you mix your fuel? Does gas leak out the carb or is the plug saturated with fuel making you think it's flooded? Describe what happens. Will it run a few seconds and quit?
